Figueroa is asking businesses along the Division Street business corridor, dubbed the "Paseo Boricua," to cease selling flavored cigars, which are emptied of tobacco and filled with marijuana or crack cocaine. Figueroa then hopes to present signed petitions to the City Council advocating a citywide ban.Almost reminds me of this story that's almost as absurd what is banning a certain type of cigar going to do to prevent anyone from consuming marijuana and crack?
Ald. Billy Ocasio (26th), who said he is already considering a city ban of such tobacco products, wishes more business owners did what Figueroa is doing.
